This is a late character, and the divergent readings in various topolects may or may not be cognate.

The Mandarin reading came from (shuāi, “to fling, to throw, to fall down”), which can be traced to *srut in Old Chinese. It can be compared with Tibetan རུད (rud, slip, that which has slipped down, falling mass, landslides), རུད་རུད་པོ (rud rud po, loosened, disintegrated, rough).

The Cantonese reading is probably unrelated, though it may reflect a descendant of the archaic pronunciation *rut and hence be cognate with Mandarin. Either way, it is evidently from the same source as Min Nan (lut, to come off, to slip loose), Zhuang lot (to come loose and drop off (due to loose tying)), and Vietnamese lột (to peel, to strip off). May be compared with Tibetan ལོད་པོ (lod po, relaxed, careless), ལྷོད་པོ (lhod po, relaxed, loose, lax), and the Chinese word family of (*lot, > (“to come off”), (“exuviae”)). Unlikely to be related to (luò, “to fall, to drop off”).
